Green Light for two £40m health centres
New health centres to be built in Lisburn and Newry will include provision for community dentistry
Northern Irish Health Minister Edwin Poots has given the go-ahead for two new £40 million health centres that will include provision for community dentistry.
The new facilities – in Lisburn and Newry – will also accommodate GPs and a range of other community health services when they open in 2016.
Health and Social Care Board Chief Executive John Compton said: “This is the first in a planned programme of health and care centre developments which will help address the need for teams to be co-located and provide greater access to health and social care services in community settings.”
